crochet bereavement sets

Earlier this month Candy requested larger gowns for Emmazing Grace (I hope these are big enough). She posted a link to Toni's Burial Gown - a little crocheted dress that is very pretty. From there I got the link to her hat/bonnet. Within 3 days I had 3 little bereavement sets finished all but the flannel for lining. I was able to get that yesterday and now, finally, all three are ready to be put in the mail.

I made this using Caron Simply Soft yarn.
Running a tie through the bottom to makes it a sleeper sack.

I don't remember what yarn this is as it was left-over from
some I used to knit blanket for my niece a few years ago.
It is a super soft baby weight that is special to me.
I added an Offray bow and booties to this set.

A white sleeper sack that was made from
Caron Simply Soft which would, I think,
be suitable for either a boy or a girl.

Tomorrow is the first day of school. With my youngest starting Kindergarten, I'll be able to make a post office stop all by myself. My goodness! That is quite a concept.

What wonderful gifts. I'm sure they mean so much to the parents who've laid their little ones down to sleep.

They are beautifully stitched from your heart and it shows.
